While I am pleased Tony Veitch eventually fronted up and apologised, there are still heaps of unanswered questions. When can you start back at work? is not one of them. I also think his speech could’ve been a little better, after all, he had over 2 years to draft it.
Did anyone else think it bizarre that TVNZ have stopped talking to their own News team? That must make lunch at the canteen a little uncomfy. I’ve now made the full conversion to TV3 News, the twits at TVNZ should be embarrassed about the obviously omitted top story at the start of this week.
My jaunts around the blogosphere and online forums have uncovered more ugly stories from Veitch’s past, it’s only a matter of time till it all comes out. Until then, those who are touched by Veitch’s public apology and short poppyness will continue to dribble on about “Poor Tony” and hope he is reinstated to our telly screens shortly. Ugh.
Quelle surprise that ugly, old, P-lovin’ fool Paul Holmes has mouthed off on the topic. Paul feels for Tony “being forced to admit” and assures us he “is going through a terrible hell” and goes on to say “he’s in danger of losing almost everything”. Um, aloha Holmesy, put down the pipe, fool. She lost her job and the ability to walk, how’s that for ”complications” and ”exceptional circumstances” ?
